Add clothes hanger bar to use shower as closet

Coachman Mirada - A walkin closet? Maybe.

Adding a removable cloths hanging bar to the shower provides additional space to hang cloths while traveling, AND, a great place to hang swim suits, wet towels, etc when parked.

Add cloths hanger bar to use shower as closet | 2001 Coachmen Mirada 300QB

The closet pole sockets and PVC pipe are available at any big box hardware store.

To install the end sockets. Measure from the ceiling how far down to install the end sockets, Also center the end sockets in the stall. The sockets are held in place by one screw in the center. Mark the location with a small “X”

Put a small dab of silicon sealant on the end sockets, then screw the end sockets into position on the shower wall. You might want to tilt the end sockets with the slot in it slightly backwards, this will reduce the chance the rod will bounce out.

Note that one of the end sockets has a big slit in it to drop the bar into.

Hangar Bar / tube – I chose to use a standard piece of PVC pipe rather than the metal bar. If the PVC pipe comes lose and falls, it won’t pinch a hole in the shower floor.

Cut the PVC pipe so it fits snug in the the end sockets.

Taking a shower

We don’t use our RV shower a lot, but when we do, we just lay the cloths on the bed, pop the bar out, take a shower. When finished, wipe the shower down, re-install the bar, and hang the clothes back up. The bar is also great for hanging wet swimming suits and towels.

Closet sockets mounted high

Use plastic pipe rather than metal rod

Clothes hung up and ready to go

I did the same thing but used a wooded rod. I also installed another set of hangers inside the shower next to the metal frame so I can hand the rod out of the way and hidden from view when not in use. I chose wood because it will more likely to bend under weight than snap under rough road conditions and in cold temperatures.

Doggy Daddy - I didn't think of using a wooden one. Good idea.

I did not want use the metal one as I fear it could damage the shower floor pan if it got dropped.

ALSO - On our Ole Toyhouse, we added tow of these, one high and one about 1/2 way up. Great for shirts, blouses, short stuff that doesn't hand down far when on a cloths hanger.
